One Boss Leaves: Salramm crafts some flesh


Two Bosses Enter ... but only One Boss Leaves, in WoW Insider's series of fantasy death matches. This season's bosses come from the five-man instances of Wrath of the Lich King.

This week's Wrath boss deathmatch pit Drakos the Interrogator against Salramm the Fleshcrafter. Salramm did indeed take the opportunity to craft some fresh flesh, carving out a victory against his spear-wielding opponent.

Reader DruidGuard made the call: "Salramm all the way. Not only will this necromancer's Ghouls actually go straight for Drakos (unlike the wandering bombs), they can be popped for even more fun if Salramm thinks they'll die too soon due to bombs or Thundering Stomp. And Saramm's two abilities, Curse of Twisted Flesh and Steal Flesh, mean that Drakos is going to be at a serious disadvantage; Drakos will have only 85% of his maximum health, a nasty long-lasting DoT and a 75% damage debuff, while Salramm gains bonus damage to wail on his dragon hide.

"Drakos would have to do some real fancy maneuvers to combat Salramm's abilities, but in the end, I believe the dead will have their day."

Nobody who commented on the battle seemed to think Drakos would take the fight. However, several readers felt the match would result in a draw. "Gotta say, with all the explosions going on, I doubt either of them will survive," observed Lyrinoir. "Tie by mutual elimination."

Case closed.

Vote in the next deathmatch (with more bosses from the five-man Wrath of the Lich King instances) when Two Bosses Enter returns later today.
